Holiday Gift Guide for The Cruelty Free Beauty Addict

I don’t know about you all, but I love nothing more than getting beauty products for the holidays! It’s a great time to ask for something that normally feels like too much of an indulgence! Today’s post is specifically for the cruelty free babes in your life. Or maybe you’re cruelty free and don’t feel comfortable gifting non-cruelty free products to people. It’s not as hard to find beautiful cruelty free products anymore and many brands are feeling the pressure to stop testing on animals. Below are great cruelty free options from a variety of brands that I love. I hope you find something you’d love to give or receive this holiday season.
